Jimmy Jive is an American professional wrestler currently under contract with the [http://niwf2007.proboards56.com/ The No Imitation Wrestling Federation and is currently one half of the Unified Tag Team Champions with his partner TimeBomb. He is also a member of the faction known as Ignition.
After losing his father at a young age, Jive's life was littered with tragedy. After moving town to town in his home state of Connecticut for the better part of his life. He and his family settled in Naugatuck CT. Constantly watching wrestling as he grew up, he and his two brothers would watch professional wrestling and emulate the matches in the privacy of their own bedroom.
"That is where it all started for me" says Jive. "Once me and my brothers would break down the moves step by step and try to figure out exactly how the moves were performed." He recently said.
After to relocating to Shelton, CT in his teen years, Jive became restless with the boring meaningless jobs and boring people. He found his calling in band promotion. After working with a few unsigned bands in the area, the man then known as Dan, got the call he was waiting for, a shot to manage a bands promotional team. Jive jumped at the opportunity to work for the band. That band is called Gargantua Soul. After working for them for three years, Gargantua Soul disbanded forcing Jive to find joy in other things as dabbling in drugs and women. This pattern continued for a few years until finally Jive woke up one day and had enough
"It was like one day, I woke up and I noticed over a quarter of my life has passed and I have nothing to show for it" Jive explained. "Sure I had accomplishes from working with the bands but really, when the band broke up I was left with what felt like nothing to do. And you know what they say, Idle hands are the devils playgrounds"
Shortly after his epiphany, Jive called his friend, Musician and Independent Professional Wrestler Rob Zombie, who trained him. "Ron gave me the building blocks I needed to get where I am today and I owe him a lot for that. yea the couple of years I worked with him were the most beaten down times of my life but as Ron says, it builds character"
Jive & The XWF
After floating around, wrestling matches in half empty bingo halls for various promotions, he decided to secretly start his own company which he named X-Treme Championship Wrestling. Pulling the strings from behind the curtain, under the alias of "The Powers That Be", giving many wrestlers opportunities to showcase their talent. Jive himself had relative success in the XWF and held the X-Treme Championship for one week only, dropping it to Cody E. in a fatal 4 way match
"Yea, so what I held it for a week. Back then, I was lucky enough to be able to compete on everyone else's level. Yea, I was business savvy but I still really didn't cut my teeth in this business until I hooked up with Vinnie a little down the line. The XWF had some fierce competition, some of which I am proud to say are now some of my closest friend's and allies" Jive said. "I've been through hell in back in the short time I have been in this business. I have been in and I got my scars to prove it."
He later teamed up with another XWF superstar, Violent Vinnie Vegas and formed Criminal Intent until Jive's untimely but temporary retirement.
The End of the XWF
After having a very rough time in his personal life, Jive temporarily retired from wrestling to get his life back together. XWF passed through a few different hands until it finally closed for good leaving many of the XWF superstars wondering where to go next.
Jive Resurfaces - The NIWF & Ignition
In the summer of 2007, Jive resurfaced and he did in a big way with some familiar faces, enemies turned allies past XWF members TimeBomb, Cody E. and David Greene, also known as Ignition. The new version of Ignition was then signed to a new home. The No Imitation Wrestling Federation. Once arriving in the NIWF, Ignition quickly made their presence felt and quickly made a name for themselves as a group not to mess with. After a mere month and a half, all members of Igntion (sans David Greene who had to take a lead of absence and was subsequently let go by Cody E) were in title contention. On June 30, Jimmy Jive & his tag team partner TimeBomb, won the NIWF Unified Tag Team Titles in a match against two other teams via a DQ.
